Frédéric Dorée and Dan Easley combine forces to become The Kindly Ones, saving the world with delicate fury and precise abandon. In Greek mythology the Erinyes or Eumenides (the Romans called them the Furies) were female personifications of vengeance. They were usually said to have been born from the blood of Uranus when Cronus castrated him. According to a variant account, they were born from Nyx. Their number is usually left indeterminate, though Virgil, probably working from an...
